Wikipedia definition below
Lane control is the practice of a cyclist controlling a lane (also known as "using the full lane", "taking control of the lane", "taking the lane" or "claiming the lane" when traveling near the center
of a marked travel lane.
Remember the JUDGE -according to OP- said he had "taken the lane"- I just assumed it is correct.
Quote from OP linked article below
This week we caught up with Gary Harty, member of TheCyclist-Lawyer.com cycling team and 20+ year cyclist, to get his thoughts and observations regarding a traffic case trial he observed on November 20, 2013. The trial involved a cyclist cited with CRS 42-4-1412(5) "bicycle rider failed to ride on right of lane when being over taken"
The "Ticket" said he wasn't "on right of lane"
I reasonably enough take that to mean -he was either middle or left.
